Claudia Landeen Elementary is on the naughty list!
Last week the principal wrote sent out a memo (probs written in coal) to teachers stating Santa Claus and poinsettias should not be put up in classrooms.
WHY? What’s the reason for taking the fun of holiday spirt away from these poor youths?
Officials say this is an effort to separate church and sate. Ya know, cause Santa is from the Bible.
One pissed parent said:
“I think one of the traditions that happens to be a very American tradition for many of us (is) Christmas. I don’t see any problem for other religions being able to display a menorah at that time of the year.”
Still, there are some
decedents of Ebenezer Scrooge parents that are fine with the new policy. A Claudia Landeen Elementary Mom said:
├óΓé¼┼ôIf the school doesn’t want to do it, I can take them to the mall. If they don’t want to do it, it’s their choice. It’s not something I’d fight over.”
We support with the separation of church and state. Howeves, Santa is NOT religious – he’s a cultural symbol of holiday spirt!
This year the poor students form this SoCal school will have jolly ol’ Frosty the Snow Man to teach them about the “Winter” spirt.
Side note: wtf is wrong with poinsettias?
